, it is an uphill battle likely voters in ohio favoring president obama over romney by 52% to 44%. romney also trails in florida where likely voters prefer the president by 4 points. ohio and florida are among 8 swing states that will be seeing this obama ad, attacking romney for his derogatory comments about americans who don't pay federal income tax. >> mitt romney dismissed 47% of americans for not pulling their weight, he attacked millions of hard-working people making $25,000, $35,000 $45,000 a year. they pay social security taxes. state taxes. local taxes, gas sales and property taxes. romney paid just 14% in taxes last year on over $13 million in income. almost all from investments. >> eliot: the romney/ryan team pay not be able to win a majority but after at itrocious call that ended the seahawks packers game, they did find an issue most americans can agree on. >> i gotta start off on something that was really troubling that occurred last night. did you guys watch that packer game last night? i mean give me a break!
romney voters by portraying this race as obama walk. but the people that are taking accurate polls. the people i'm in touch with. people who work with me and scott rasmussen, the only pollster that really is doing it correctly all have this race very different. rasmussen coming up behind you. he is coming up next. >> and a raiser thin edge against in him in ohio. >> bill: wait, wait. dick, wait. you know, you have got -- you make a provocative statement like that. you have got to stop and we have to walk through it. okay? now, you. >> walk away. >> bill: you assert that the fix is in. na is a fairly bold and fresh assertion. you say. >> fresh piece of humanity. >> bill: "new york times," quinnipiac, marist college, all of them are doing the numbers they are cooking the books so that the president goes better in the polling so that he gets more money from his donors. can you back it up? >> yes. all of these polls are assuming a very high turnout among african-americans latinos and young people. that produces a skew that makes them vastly more democratic than the actual sample itself
worried about not only fending voters had voted for obama in 2008. they didn't want to sound like romney was being a jerk, but they were worried, too, pretty obviously, about what the establishment press was going to say. if romney came out and attacked the first black president on his record and went after him, what would people say? well, that strategy, the latest polling tells us, has not exactly been a bell ringer in ohio. so what you hear from romney is he gets to the must-win. it is an absolutely must-win state for him is this tough new tone, and not only is he talking about the economy as you heard him do there, but guess what's back? the debt clock. they've got the debt clock back, and they're talking a lot about how much president obama's policies cost, they're talking about the size and shape of government and, as you heard him doing very crisply there, we can't afford four more years, is the new romney message. and we can't -- america won't last through a trajectory of more spending, more debt, more taxes. megyn: all right. so he's going to get sharper in his tone, in his cont
president obama. but mitt isn't having it, trying to get ohio voters to the right by focusing on the economy. >> with incomes going down, every year, every year going down, down, down. prices of electricity up and health insurance up and the cost of gasoline, having doubled, these are tough times. even for families with jobs. i know what it takes to get this economy going again. cheryl: so what would a tax plan under a romney/ryan administration look like? rich edson breaks it down for us. rich? >> reporter: well, cheryl, democrats call it a giveaway to the rich at the expense of the middle class. republicans say they're wrong, and this morning governor romney defended his tax plan. >> by the way, don't be expecting a huge cut in taxes because i'm also going to lower deductions and exemptions. by bringing rates down, we'll be able to let small businesses keep more of their money to hire more people. >> in the end the details are really up to congress. romney's proposed cutting every tax rate by 20%. to insure the treasury department takes in about the same amount of money under a new system,
are somewhat suspect. first the "the washington post" poll in florida. it has president obama leading romney by 4 points. 51% 47%. the "new york times" poll has obama up by 9 points. 53 percent, 44%. same state, same likely voter scenario. in ohio, "the washington post" has the president up by 8. 52% 44%. "times" poll has obama up by 10 over romney. 53%, 43%. however, in the rasmussen daily tracking poll, the national survey, the race is tied. a dead heat 46% 46%. on this day four years ago, rasmussen had mr. obama up by 5 points over john mccain. 50%, 45%. a case could be made that mitt romney is doing better than john mccain did. but that might be misleading. the presidential race is going to come down to just a handful of states ohio and florida being the most important governor romney plus win in both places that's why today's polling news is causing controversy. talking points has said from the very beginning that the debates this year will be the deciding factor one week from tonight in denver, colorado, the president will meet the governor at :00 p.m. eastern time. no question and all
it. according to the latest quinnipiac university/new york times/cbs news poll of likely voters, it's actually related -- >> no, it's not. >> president obama leads romney by 10 percentage points in ohio. no republican has lost and then won the presidency. the president is up nine points in florida and has opened up a 12-point lead in pennsylvania. in the same poll, president obama leads mitt romney in his handling of the economy in all three states. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have somehow managed to win despite that media liberal bias. you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's happening there, and why is he losing so badly, especially in ohio? >> well, it's very unlikely the president will win those states by those margins, but these numbers are not out of line dr
, president obama leads mitt romney in his ndlif e ecomy ill estat. 51% of polled voters say the president would do the better job. >> okay, let's go back to the last slide, guys. and mark halperin, let's talk to you. i know you agree with me that the media is liberal. guess what? republicans have someh managed to win dpitehat a raas you've said it repeatedly on this show. so despite that fact, mitt romney is not getting crushed in all three of these states because of the liberal media bias. what's hapning the, and why is he lingoba especially in oh? >> well, it's very unlikely the president will win those states by those margins, but these numbers are not out of line dramatically with private polling and some other public polling. i think the biggest problem rit now remains him. he's not driving asient mee. the president does -- says something, the republicans get all excited about it. they treat it like a gaffe. they'll talk about it for a day. and then they'll move on to something else. the biggest danger to me right now for the republican party are two things. one is that you look athe
of the most recent polls in these two key battleground states. look at ohio first. likely voters choice for president you see it right there, john, 50% for president obama, 44% for romney. that's a nice lead for obama in the key battleground state of ohio. if you take a look at florida, you see right now in our poll of polls the average among the most recent polls in florida, 49% for obama, 45% for romney. the question to you, john, can romney win without winning ohio and florida? >> in a word, wolf. i took a walk over here to show. the answer is no. you just mentioned ohio and florida. states the president carried four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that t
, of voters, gives romney the edge by a wide margin. leads president obama 55-41. that is 14 points, interesting. i don't know how they define middle class, but that's the result of the poll. and coming up in the ten o'clock hour, two big names in the republican party, rnc chairman, and karl rove coming up next hour. and i used to live in california, a beautiful state that has a great deal to offer, got it. it's now a horrible place to do business, job killing environmental laws, job killing regulations and as a result, people are leaving in droves. that story is our new at 10 story, the max exodus from the formerly golden state. and then our guy in california will join us about that exodus from california. let's go nicole, in the past we put blackberry maker rim on death watch. cue the-- ♪ >> nicole, is it right to put them on death watch? >> i don't know what to tell you. be very careful. they have the blackberry and the blackberry is it still a popular item. yes, it's losing market share to the snazzier iphone of course, however, it's still something people want. so, are peopl
is obama taking the lead for the first time in who voters trust going forward. >> and he doesn't have a message that is consistent. because in ohio, he confused his tax message. so if he is going to offer tax ve s amount of money because i'm going to eliminate deductions, but president obama actually didn't inease your taxes, which was a misstatement of his past -- in the last 48 hours, he has completely muddled his taxmessage, and you c dot rliann against an incumbent president who's popular. >> the romney people thought that this was going to be a referendum on barack oma and that they wouldn't have to put forward new ideas. here we have a situation where the president hasn't told us anything about what he's going to do in the second term. heet awit. you know, i had this thought the other day with the debates coming up. i can't remember a single thing that bill clinton said or did in the 1996 debates against bob dole. and i think that that is exact what barack obama'soal i or neew we >> and you know, joe, the thing that's so fascinating is that 've ended up, because both candidates
. the obama campaign has spent months and millions trying to convince voters that mitt romney is unethical. >> he won't release his tax returns before 2010. >> unprepared. >> my opponent and his running mate are new to foreign policy. >> unattached to reality. >> my thinking is maybe you haven't gotten around a lot. >> with all those alleged problems, surely he has no chance of prevailing against president obama in the debates, right? well, not according to the obama campaign. >> mitt romney i think has an advantage because he's been through 20 of these debates in the primaries over the last year. >> reporter: the romney team says president obama is weak on foreign policy. >> what we do not see is steady consistent american leadership. >> reporter: weak on the economy. >> he's over his head. and he's swimming in the wrong direction. >> reporter: and just plain weak overall. >> the president today threw in the white flag of surrender again. >> reporter: with all those weaknesses, surely he would be easy to beat in a debate, right? oh, no. not according to mitt romney. >> he's the president
's an unnecessary attempt to roll back voter rights. will many, many voters be confused and unable to comply? joining me now is john avlon. listen to mrs. obama over the weekend. >> we cannot let anyone discourage us from casting our ballots. we cannot make anyone make it feel unwelcome in the voting booth. it's up to us to make sure that in every election, every voice is heard and every vote is counted. that means making sure our laws preserve that right. monitoring the polls to make sure every eligible voter can exercise that right. >> so john, so many new laws. so many different requirements now. poll workers are going to have a field day trying to figure out what it all means. is there the potential for chaos at the polls come november? >> is there the potential? absolutely. we're changing the rules. that leads to a degree of uncertainty. people who haven't had to show id befo i.d. before in certain states will have to do so. some folks may be afraid of that. we have a tortured history of voting rights in this country. laws strike an emotional button. we have instances in the past of vot
. as you said, i remember during past elections, every losing candidate has had this. the hillary voters in the 2008 primary had their own circle. they were convinced that the support for obama was way overstated. you were totally right about 2004, the 2002. like every election this happens, but the weird how this really happened in the last week was kind of remarkable. >> isn't this -- i think this is sort of a subset of a larger trend on the right? it's been going on for a really long time. there's a sort of combination of self-pity and sort of feeding the idea that they are victims of this massive conspiracy by the left to lie about everything and that they are truly the majority. i've been calling it the fun house mirror. i love your characterization of it even more. but there is this notion that everything is a lie. climate change is a lie. the idea that liberals are just lying to you all the time. this distrust of media, distrust of numbers, distrust of data. everything is a lie. >> it's also funny because a lot of the paul ryan supporters, it's not politics. it's math. liberals ta
for obama, 52-44, in ohio. that's significant. okay. now, did you know this? today is national voter registration day, the first ever national voter registration day. you have celebrities, you have civic organizations, grassroots groups, universities, all kinds of people encouraging folks to register and to commit to actually voting. and how is this for words of encouragement to latino americans. quote, we need for the latino community to stop the bs and understand that the latin community in america needs them to wake up and actually engage. i just don't think they understand how important it is that one vote actually does count. those strong words coming from my next guest, wilmer valderrama, actor, activist and the 2012 co-chair of voto latino. welcome. nice to meet you. >> thank you very much. how are you? >> good. i'm great. you say in that quote that latino americans, you know, may not understand that their votes actually count. why? >> yeah, i just think that a lot of it also comes from, i mean, heritage somehow. i think for the history of a lot of our culture in the united st
" magazine, and mitt romney has done plenty of these things too. this is not a barack obama or mitt romney thing. >> i'm just asking about the timing. >> what they're trying do is reach independent voters who haven't made their mind up yet and they think they may get them and female voters, get them through "the view." the timing makes it look more like he is focused on campaigning first and foremost than being president first and foremost and has opened him up to considerable criticism from republicans about, you know, how do you have it time on your schedule to do a midday talk show and to not sit down with some of these people. i just return to jeff's point, it's because he understands that any meetings here are fraught with the fact that we are exactly six weeks away from a very contentious election and he doesn't want to go down that road. you can debate whether that's the right or wrong thing for the president to do but it is the political thing that is being done currently. >> quickly, we want to talk about ohio, because "the washington post" on your battlegrounds you've moved ohio
